I help clients with mild eating disorders that are not causing any medical complications. This might look like binge eating when you are anxious in order to stuff down feelings of heartbreak, loneliness or helplessness. I can help you learn how to manage these deep painful feelings rather than trying to avoid them by overeating. Once you learn that you can feel these difficult feelings than you no longer have to avoid them with food.

While most eating disorder issues are treated by cognitive behavioral methodologies or specialized outpatient/inpatient programs, Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, PhD provide relief first and foremost for the brain of one suffering from an eating disorder----without giving them medication. We believe that the neural circuitries responsible for the compulsive behaviors with eating are not necessarily only a neurotransmitter issue but of overused neural networks that affect the harmonization, balance, and decisions of the whole brain. Contact email@example.com or 877-606-6161 to learn more about this safe and effective alternative.

If you have struggled unsuccessfully with weight loss, I will help you by looking at all the things that have gotten in your way of healthy weight loss. We will look at family, friends, and romantic relationships in your life, and what you learned about food and your body. We will uncover fears you may have that have to do with relationships and dating. If you are anorexic or bulimic I can work with you if you are not struggling with a life threatening situation. Recovered anorexics or bulimics who have more work to do in therapy to clarify the issues entrenched in their behavior, and emotional triggers for unhealthy behavior.

Eating disorders are often an attempt at control in a life where something else is not working, out of control, and in desperate need of repair. I work with individuals who are struggling with forms of binge eating, bulimia, anorexia, restrictive eating, and exercise bulimia. These behaviors may have emerged from or overlap with depression, anxiety, grief and mourning. I work both in the here-and-now and explore any history that may have aided in the development of the destructive behavior. I encourage family sessions when appropriate to aid in recovery.

You will learn what food habits you have adopted over time and will explore the root for these habits. You will learn how your thoughts and emotions influence the eating behavior and will develop skills to help you heal. I do not work with severe cases of anorexia and bulimia or eating disorders stemming from abuse or trauma. I do work with disordered eating stemming from emotional stress.

Over the years I have had a number of clients who suffer from anorexia or bulimia. Generally these are young women who are convinced that their misguided eating habits and distorted view of their body are necessary and "normal." Using a gentle but honest approach, I try to help them see the many ways they are hampering their health and their relationships through maintaining their disorder. In time, if they stick with my program, they work through the internal conflicts that underlie the eating disorder and begin to thrive in their personal and professional lives.

Eating disorders take life in a variety of forms -- some obvious and some more subtle -- but they always create isolation, pain, and separation from life and loved ones. I work with women and men to break out of the prison of eating and body image disorders. Whether you are suffering from rigid restriction, binge purge cycles, obsession with diet and exercise or compulsive eating, we will work together to understand the meaning of the disorder in your personal history and current life. Gently and without judgement, I will support you to take risks toward changes that will take you in the direction of freedom and a life without rules, restrictions or acting on destructive impulses.
